Re: [URGENT] Impending deletion of Helm 2 releases and charts buckets

Matt Farina


You ask a good question.

There are two things worth noting...
  1. Many of the charts people use have been slower to move out of the stable and incubator repos than expected. We are still finding them new homes. So, not everything is deprecated. There are many useful things there.
  2. There is more use of the stable and incubator repos than I ever expected. I'm told the use is growing even as things move off it. When I recently saw some numbers I was amazingly surprised. I had expected it to be lower. Note, I don't have access to this data. The buckets are Google owned/managed so only they have access to this. I think Vic is the only one of the Helm maintainers with access to this.
Many people will have some pain when the stable and incubator repos go away.

We do have some announcements (I'm hoping next week) and a path forward we're working out that will help make this easier.
